Secret Life of Bees to be discussed

Written by 

Sally Salyards will lead a discussion of The Secret Life of Bees at 7 p.m. on Nov. 4 in the Jackson County library as part of the library discussion group Bookends.  

The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd is set in South Carolina in 1964 and tells the story of 14-year-old Lily Owens, who lives in a house with a neglectful father, T.Ray, and a black maid, Rosaleen.

The novel, which is considered historical fiction, has received much critical acclaim and was on the New York Times Bestseller List. There will be extra copies of The Secret Life of Bees available at the library for patrons to read prior to the discussion on Nov. 4.
